. the debates go on and on and on. tmz caught up with jim lehrer moderator of the debate. there was this whole controversy over the debaters, the moderators are not supposed to sort of step into the debates and be kind of quiet. maybe was jim lehrer a little too quiet? tmz caught up. this is what he had to say. >> do you feel you were disrespected by president obama and governor romney? >> i didn't expect much. >> they worried that he was treated like a doormat was part of the possibility. >> yeah. they both kind of ran right over him. give me more time. i'm going to continue. jim didn't seem to have a lot of control in the debate. >> it's hard, though, rob. >> it's intimidating. how do you tell the president, how do you control that? has to be a better way. other people have done a better way. i don't think other moderators, whether it's our own martha raddatz or candy crowley, i think you would have seen a different tone. >> should have considered simon cowell. for this role. exactly. >> exactly. >> who was on -- >> jim, 12th, perhaps final. >>> real quick news here. j-lo in paris for fashio
no idea. i have absolutely no idea why. i'm surprised jim lehrer didn't ask about it. i was surprised romney didn't affirmatively try to defuse it himself. i was surprised that obama didn't bring it up. biggest surprise for me of the night is that it didn't come up. it's been the dominant thing in our debate for the last few weeks. >> david axelrod is coming up. jon meacham, you look over the past 25 years, 30 years or so, and you look at the republican presidential candidates who all have strengths, they've all been remarkable men in their own way, but not good debaters. you know, republicans have held our breath through the john mccain debates and the george w. bush debates and the bob dole debates and the george h.w. debates. again, a great man, a horrific debater. you know, the famous jon lovitz line, "i can't believe i'm losing to this guy." playing michael dukakis. you really do have to go back to ronald reagan to find a republican that was in command during a presidential debate. and i predict that's going to excite the republican base in a way it hasn't been excited in a very
? let's go to jim acosta at the rally in fishersville, virginia. trace adkins, i guess, is going to perform there. they're getting ready for a big, big blowout. >> reporter: that's right, erin. they are blowing this day up. you could say this is a #winningday for the romney campaign. trace adkins is on stage. and we saw the evidence of this all day long from the gop nominee, when he got on board his campaign plane earlier this morning. he was already cruising at a higher altitude, erin, chatting up his campaign staff. there was a smile on his face. and, honestly, erin, i've been covering this campaign for a year and a half. this was one of the happiest days that i've seen on the part of this campaign and its staff for some time. but you could tell that things were starting to change during the day, as the president was starting to mount that new offensive, going after mitt romney on his statements last night, calling into question whether or not the gop contender was telling the truth during last night's debate and putting out that new ad that said if we can't trust him on the de
hours away. let's go straight to denver and to jim acosta. and, jim, does team romney, do they see the polls we ran through, is this a sign the race is tightening, is the wind in romney's sails, is it there going into tonight? >> they do, actually. i just got off the phone with a couple of romney campaign sources, brooke. i can tell you that the romney campaign does see this race tightening right now and that their game plan for tonight, as it was laid out to me, is to make sure that trajectory as one romney campaign source put it continues. they want to see the race continue to tighten. it is interesting to give you a couple of nuggets i got off the phone call a few moments ago, they are not going to be looking for a knockout punch tonight. what they're hoping to do for the american people is show a contrast, a clear contrast as they call it between the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interes

are the facts really. jim angle has a fact check for us live from washington. >>> governor romney's tax plans would reduce rates by 20% across the board. he would keep it deficit neutral by trimming some of the $1.2 trillion year-end tax ducks. president obama argues there aren't enough deductions that only hit the rich so romney would have to hit the middle class. listen to this exchange. >> independent studies looking at this said the only way to meet governor romney's pledge are not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit is by burden evening middle class families, the average middle class family with children would pay about $2,000 more. >> i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower taxes on middle income families. you cite a study. there are six other studies that look to the study you describe and say it's completely wrong. >> reporter: the president is referring to a study by the tax anthropology sent wer which shows which tax deductions to put on the table on which to take off. the first study said it would result in the $2,000 ta

? what you see is that it was put there in the first place as jim crow reforms to suppress the black vote. we've tolerated it ever since. so, you know, there are some things like voter i.d. where people may say are similar to jim crow. this, unfortunately, is a vestage of jim crow. here in florida, you really only have two big points that this was used. one was right after the civil war, when it was greatly expand. it had been used for about 24 years before but greatly expanded right after the civil war. then you have governor scott putting it back in place after the prior republican governors decided to cut bait with that sordid history, affirm people's right to vote and affirm their right to a second chance. >> ben gjealous and kem bra praidi, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> will president obama beat himself in the debate? we'll talk. of any small business credit card! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!

. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs, i love big bird, i actually like you too. >> reporter: one of the most surprising parts of the president's performance was what he did not say. no mention of romney's infamous 47% remark, no talk of bain capital, nothing about romney's own taxes. he did play the "romney is a hypocrite" card when it comes to health care. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well. in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and, as a consequence, people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed job. >> reporter: romney, who ran from his massachusetts health care plan during the gop primaries, now used it to tack to the middle for the general election. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state, we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did, instead, was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> reporter: and romney's countless hours of
to alter his attack on the president. with reaction from mitt romney, here is jim acosta. >> reporter: after a couple of days of very positive reviews for his debate performance against president obama, mitt romney is running in political news that may be blunting that momentum. the new unemployment report showing that the jobless rate has dipped below 8%, really taking away one of his key lines of attack against the president. for months, mitt romney has been saying the president failed to take the nation's unemployment rate below 8%, but at an event here in coal country in virginia, romney found a new way to crunch the numbers. here is what he had to say. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly. but it has come down nonetheless. the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: now for much of this weekend, romney will be campaigning across the state of florida, a state where the econom
us now is a big supporter of pulpit freedom sunday, jim garlow senior pastor of skyline weslyan church in san diego. what do you plan on saying today? i'm just curious. to the congregation there. >> i'm going to walk through the various biblical issues in this year's election. i'll talk about candidates that are in support of those various biblical issues and candidates that in opposition to them and urge those in the congregation to vote for those who come mostly in compliance with biblical principles. >> will you be endorsing a specific candidate today as well? >> i probably will. church does not -- the church cannot vote, but i as a pastor did not surrender my freedom of speech and freedom of religion once i was ordained to be a pastor, so i very likely will be announcing who i will be voting for on a number of different elections, state, local, and federal as well. >> are you willing then to lose your tax exempt status? i'm curious why you would speak this way in your church as opposed to maybe outside your church when that wouldn't be such a risk? >> well, i would speak in
to e.d. hill, are you still here? he couldn't get a word in he think-wise. >> almost like jim lehrer. >> it was entertaining, we'll he show you more of that coming up in the show. >> a leading security official at the u.s. consulate in libya order today testify at wednesday's house oversight committee hearing. that hearing designed to investigate the deadly terrorist attack that killed four, including our ambassador. >> peter: peter doocy, what can you tell us about lt. colonel amy wood. >> the head of the 16 member special forces team in charge of keeping u.s. personal and he's a green beret from the u.s. national guard and subpoenaed to appear in front of congress at a hearing about the deadly 9/11 raid at at consulate in benghazi, that killed u.s. ambassador stevens, and sean smith, glenn doherty and tyrone woods. we don't have a complete list, but we have an information what mr. wood will say. cbs it reporting that he met with ambassador stevens just about every day between february when his mobile security deployment team until august when he left just about a month before the d
allen and jim vandehei write but maybe there's a straining to find a more biz zanty explanation than is necessarily the case. to question that ann romney was unhawpe with what was happening to her husband as any reasonable wife would be, given the way he was being portrayed and allowing people to portray himself. there's, you know, losing campaign, which the romney campaign was until the debate in denver, there's always a lot of second guessing and it started early in this campaign. she clearly has made her feelings known in a very direct way. the part of the story about tagg romney's involvement which is that he's playing this much bigger role in the campaign, i'm a little more dubious about that on the basis of some of my reporting but i think there's no question that his family has been much more involved in general over the course of the last month than it had been for the last year and a half. >> so this rumor that stu stevens has been elevated to the sidelines poppy cook. >> i'm comfounded of references of stu stevens because i don't know who that is. but yes, no in terms of st
you, jim. the republicans meant a great deal before he left, both the week prior, during about what requirements going back home, the only requirement that the people want is that congress be here working. we are here and prepared to work. 14 million people that are out of work demand that congress be here working so that we can put donation back to work. we just came from a conference that was most informative than personal. people.com want to see if you're working because they understand on a very personal level what this means as the leader says one medicare, social security, and in fact obamacare are all on the ballot and what that is to the american people. we are here to work. now the vice chair of the caucus, xavier becerra. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i would like to echo what those who have spoken before me have said they simply reiterating some in that we all know. if you believe in america, you invest in america. not in the cayman islands, not in swiss bank accounts, that here in america. the president made this clear in his state of the union address some of the year ago
in court. ahead of that sandusky released a statement from his pennsylvania jail cell. abc's jim avila has the story. >> reporter: jerry sandusky releases an audio statement proclaiming himself an innocent man and calling his victims liars. >> i'm responding to the worst loss of my life. first i looked at myself. over and over i asked why? why didn't we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? what's the purpose? maybe it will help others. some vulnerable children who could be abused might not be as a result of the all the publicity. that would be nice, but i'm not sure about it. i would cherish the opportunity to become a candle for others as they have been a light for me. they can take away my life, they can make me out as a monster, they can treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart. in my heart, i know i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. my wife has been my only sex partner and that was after marriage. our love continues. >> it is a defiant and risky statement. sandusky now has to face a judg

got to believe angry black men are often vigorous and fox news is all powerful that when jim lehrer demoderates a debate a pbs anchor that fox has power over him. so look at the ridiculous nature of what i'm saying. this is in defense of the indefensible, on stub tans president obama was not ready. he was not ready to handle the result of the months of attacking mitt romney. he had been attacking him, calling him a liar, a his campaign. the responsible for the murder of a woman. now unfiltered meeting with mitt romney and they were face to face, that's a difficult position. so ed schultz lied about it, axelrod dishonest and liar. they are pushing a narrative of negative much like the president said he would do if you have nothing to run on you make your opponent someone to run away from to paraphrase. >> silly a couple days ago i was talking to a republic strategist african-american and she was saying that black men sometimes do have to worry about this. whether it be in business or any field. >> why? then that's. >> some white people in our society do react to a strong point of vie
think it's very important to look in the camera and talk to us and jim lair is a great american. he is a wonderful moderator. talk to us. talk to us in our living rooms and our kitchens. whether we're working, watching at the airport. >> president, don't get down. look straight in the camera. don't give us long sentences. keep it clear. keep it concise. mr. president, you're going to do a good job. >> what an anniversary. spend is doing a debate here. i want both of you to take a look at this. this is the latest poll that came out, cnn-orc poll. latino voters choice for the president. whopping 70% chose president obama compared with 26 terz for mitt romney. romney here is doing worse than john mccain did back in 2008 who got 31%. the latino vote. also worse than george w. bush in 2004 who got 44% of the latino. anna, to you. is there anything at this point that romney can do to get the latino support up? >> well, suzanne, i think praying on novina might help. look, he -- we had a tough primary on the republican side. i think mitt romney has been an unknown commodity to his hispani h

claim the moderator, jim lehrer are of pbs was basically too right-wing and acting in concert with the romney campaign somehow, which is denial to a level that is truly amusing. bill: if that is the one observation you have i'mcuriousu observe this. this is al gore talking about the altitude in colorado, specifically the city of denver. roll this. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust. >> that is interesting. >> i don't know, maybe --. bill: did you hear that voice in the background, that's interesting? now, it is true, and it is factual he left vegas around 2:00 in the afternoon. but just on the face, what do you think of that? >> well that may be its effect on vice president gore. i think the president is in peek physical condition. i think he could probably handle 5,000 feet. this is why the president had a problem in the macro explanation, is, people like al gore, suck up to the president. every presi
